LDS Church and Suffrage

Part 2: Church

Women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were deeply involved in pressing for suffrage. Many attended national conventions, even though they were sometimes shunned due to polygamy. Utah became the third state in 1896 to grant suffrage. See the stories of suffrage from the names listed here.
